From everything I've been told, the check engine light may stay illuminated for a week or more and then may reset itself. It's based on an algorithm of past use and once it senses that the situation has been corrected, it will reset itself. In the case of our Dodge Durango it meant having the Delaer reset it. Some dealers will do it as a courtesy. I did find an article that might interest you...it talks about a way to reset it yourself, but it does come with some caveats, so please read carefully before decing to try it. http://www.auto-facts.org/resetcheckenginelight.html

Gas cap light evap code


What vehicle is it? (year, make, model, engine?) There are a lot of vacuum lines associated with the evap system on most vehicles. It could be as simple as a vacuum line cracked, broken or disconnected.

Check fuel cap light coming on, replaced twice - still on. ideas?


It sounds like you have a large evap leak. The cap is most likely not the cause. You could have a hole in any numerous evap lines or in the fuel filler neck. Also the canister vent solenoid could be malfunctioning. Your best bet is to have an emissions certified shop test the system with a smoke tester. They need to have a scan tool capable of actuating the canister vent solenoid.

yes it could ! this is part of the emission system on todays vehicles. if your sure you do not have a hole in a emission hose. just replace cap, the seal may be bad on cap. then drive it. light should go out if this is the only problem. good-day ! check all lines and hoses in system. remove cap completely and replace it. this may fix problem.

My 2000 ford taurs engine check light is on with an emmission code p1405 what should i be checking?


Check vacuum lines running to the valve covers the rubber end sometimes get holes and have to be replaced. One on the front and one on the back valve cover. Also check the pvc valve tube running under the throttle body same thing the rubber connector gets a hole in it. One more thing check the gas filler neck when you take off the gas cap look for hair line cracks in the plastic coating thats on the inside at the top its gray in color.

Locating vacuum canister and testing it. check engine light has come on and the code is P0442. I replaced the gas cap, check engine light still on. Looked for leaks w/ visible hoses but can't locate evap...


The purge solenoid should be in the hard plastic vent lines that run under the tube between the intake and the air filter, ablove the transmission, it is common for vibration holes to be worn in the hard plastic tubes causing a vacuum leak. The purge solenoid is small and it has an electric wire coming from it. I 'think' your canister is in the front lower left corner under the hood, you may have to remove splash shields to see it. The problem is most likely in the hard plastic lines at the solenoid. Let me know if this helps.
